Dennis Bergkamp has declared his desire to one day return to Arsenal as part of the north London club’s coaching staff.

The Dutchman spent a hugely successful 11-year spell with the Gunners between 1995 and 2006, winning three Premier League titles and four FA Cups.

The 44-year-old, who scored 120 goals for Arsenal, currently works as an assistant coach at Ajax.

But Bergkamp admits that he would love to return to Arsenal at some point in his coaching career.

“The feeling Johan Cruyff has had for Barcelona, I have the same with Arsenal” Bergkamp is quoted as saying by the Telegraph.

“At Arsenal it was a good click. I always enjoyed it. I never had a bad day there.

“It is always on my mind. It is part of my ambition to come back at some stage. I don’t see myself being at Ajax for the rest of my coaching career. I don’t see myself as a manager.

“I see myself as being part of the coaching staff. I really enjoy that role, especially the individual training with the strikers. Steve Bould is there now which is excellent.

“I’ve spoken to Patrick Vieira and Thierry Henry would love to come back to Arsenal one day. Tony Adams is a big option as well.”
